Time's Up: Brett Kavanaugh Chaos Is Why The Supreme Court Needs Term Limits

by David Davenportvia Washington Examiner
Wednesday, October 3, 2018

The Supreme Court opened its new term this week, but hardly anyone noticed. Instead the attention is drawn to the one empty seat and the process to fill it.

In “Why Liberalism Failed,” Patrick Deneen makes an eye-opening contribution to the critique of liberalism. Equating liberalism with the modern tradition of freedom, he distills abuses of state power, nature, culture, technology, and education that are undertaken in freedom’s name yet leave citizens less self-sufficient, less disposed to cooperate, and less capable of looking beyond material goods and social status to the cultivation of character and to the claims of duty.
